Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

1447 days ago by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Carpenter's Tool Box for soon-to-be two year-old boy

1750 days ago by NBeener | 12 comments »

My wife’s grandson is somehow about to turn two. Time to turn him on to tools, huh? That’s the primary reason I’ve been taking a whack at dovetail joints. The tool box is in dry fit, right now. In the next day or two, I’ll move to glue-up. The cuts in the ends of the handle are for wedge/shims to hold the handle in place. The pics: ....Current plan is to fill it with something like this….. I did something wrong with the plywood bottom. The ...

1793 days ago by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well in order to move up to building household furniture I have to show the boss what I can do…So I am starting with some shop cabinets. Nothing fancy, they are made of mdf. I matched the dimensions off one of the cabinets in my kitchen. I am planning on using just ripped 2×4 for the face frame, ill eventually add doors too. Obviously I need a lot of practice…but I realize I need a lot more clamps than what I have. I was able to get a crosscut sled done for t...

The Super Sled #1: Shop Built Tenon Jig

1977 days ago by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I finished the latest accessory for the Super Sled – the Tenon Jig. It’s pretty darn easy to build. Given the cost of commercial tenon jigs, you could easily make this one with the scrap plywood you have laying around. The Tenon Jig’s features include: - micro adjustment feature- built in scale- unique leveling system For PDF measured drawing of the Super Sled and the Tenon Jig, go to the project page and click on the “Browse This Projects Files” link towards the top:h...

Shop Organization #9: Workbench Cabinet (Part 2)

2369 days ago by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Drawer Parts Galore I started by squaring some panels to the width of the drawers. To save time I rabbeted the entire panel. Later I would rip them to create the sized drawer fronts. Testing the drawer front fit. You can see the drawer pieces in each cubby awaiting their fronts. The backs of the drawers are held by dadoes 1/2” in from the back of the drawer. I got to spend some quality time with the new crosscut sled.If you squint you can see that there is another 1/2”...

Shop Organization #7: Crosscut Sled version 2.0 and Panel Sled

2375 days ago by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

With the new saw I have needed to make a new crosscut sled. I have been struggling with cutting large plywood panels so I also decided to make a panel cutting sled based on Norm's design Panel Sled I started by planing some white oak to fit in the miter slots. The runners are set just below the table surface. I attached the runner to a 3 foot run of plywood…. .... and ran the ply through the saw. I attached a fence to the back of the sled square to the cut edge. It...
